with defense lawyers prosecutors, law enforcement, a lot of people on our task force. when we talk to law enforcement one thing that stood out was the law enforcement cannot even detain someone if you shoot someone dead in the streets of florida, and you claim stand your ground, law enforcement can't even detain you under the immunity provision so they can createlyaccurately do an investigation. my task force came out with amend so law enforcement can do their job and investigate the claim of stand your ground. >> eliot: was governor scott semiicsympathetic to that narrow amendment, or did you feel that there was a pre-ordained out come in saying that the law was good as it is. >> definitely. i gave them a copy of my task force which has a cross section of republicans and democrats across the aisle, and they had that in their possession during the whole road show around the state. they never even discussed it. when they put out their report it was never discussed. i don't know how a rational person can think that law enforcement should be able to detain someone when you have a dead person

side of the border israeli defense forces reported that 30 rockets were fired into their airspace, the israeli airspace from gaza but most of those rockets were then destroyed by israel's iron dome security shield that we talked about here last night. five israelis have been killed in the conflict so far. and while israel still hasn't sent ground troops into gaza, get this. 16,000 soldiers are now standing ready at the border of gaza which, of course, makes tomorrow's negotiations all the more critical. so joining me now for prospective on the conflict is hussein ibish a senior fellow at the american task force on palestine. he's coming to us via skype from pompton plains, new jersey. hussein, welcome back inside "the war room." >> thank you governor. >> jennifer: you bet. so what, just to bring people up to speed, what are the palestinians asking for this negotiation? >> well, hamas, to be specific because hamas is not the diplomatic representative. that's the plo but there is this division between the west bank

plan to the president he argued if the seal team had tripped pakistan's defenses tripped their alarms, and his men found themselves surrounded by pakistan's armed forces and air force that he advised that they strong arm the compound and wait for washington to negotiate their extraction. it was president obama who said no, if you're going in, i want you to go in with enough force to fight your way out of the% country if necessary. clearly that was embracing of a large risk. that was embracing the possibility of actually getting in a shooting war with pakistan. so it did surprise me that it would be the president who would demand they go in in force as opposed to the military commander. >> eliot: that is fascinating because one presumes had there been a stand off that could have been negotiated out. fascinating and i'm sure there will be more, and maybe you'll write more about that as time goes on. mark bowden, author of the spectacular new book" the finish" the killing of osama bin laden. thank you for your time tonight. >> thank you eliot. >> eliot: the decision with the potential to
